Title: Hawai`i Creole English
Subtitle: A Typological Analysis of the Tense-Mood-Aspect System
Written By: Viveka Velupillai
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=0-333-99340-3
Description:

Are there common specific patterns in the Tense-Mood-Aspect systems of Creoles? Do Creoles constitute a structural type of language? This in-depth synchronic description of the Tense-Mood-Aspect system of contemporary Hawai'i Creole English, is a language-internal analysis based on extensive first-hand data, both written and spoken. The language variety has been used as a basis for major linguistic hypotheses - a strength of this book is the use of a language-independent typological framework, placing the system in a cross-linguistic perspective.
